Pattaya beach is really famous for tourists, not only for Thai travelers but also to people all over the world. Pattaya gains its reputation from the beauty of beaches as well as variety of beach activities. However, there are differences in terms of the style of travel of foreign traveler from different regions.
Firstly, we have to under stand the nature and characteristics of the travelers. As I am the person who is a tourist guide for almost 10 years and working in Pattaya and many part of the country. The difference of the tourist behaviour sometimes depends on the region that they come from. For example, travelers from USA and Europe are likely to prefer relaxing trip rather than sight seeing trip or joining many kind of activities. This is also depends on the climate of each region that they come from, for the one comes from the region that has long winter, they intend to relax with some countries in tropical zone like Indonesia (Bali), Thailand and so on. Mean while tourists from other country like Asia seem to enjoy activities rather lying on the beach and pleasure with sunbath.
The number of foreign tourists from western region who visited Pattaya city reaches million per year. According to this reason, many of hotels and resorts in Pattaya city have to provide excellent services to attract guest from this regions in order to survive in this very competitive market.
Beach hotel means the hotel that located close to the beach or have its own private beach to provide service to guests. It is the top priority for foreign travelers to look for hotel accommodation that has private beach for them to relax. Fortunately, there are quite number of luxurious five stars hotel in Pattaya which has private beach to ensure that guests are able to enjoy holiday.
However, in general, these hotels have online booking system of their own as well as having deals with travel agent or online hotel booking websites. However, for travelers who have to plan the trip in advance, they have to book for accommodation through local travel agent or make hotel reservation through websites. And the fact is that it is really important for them to make sure, if they want to book for hotel where they can relax on the private and cosy beach, they have to see the picture of the accommodation and the beach that the hotel has. This is because sometimes there is misunderstanding of the location and condition of the hotel.
As long as online booking system does not provide complete visual of the hotel, especially for the small hotel booking websites which usually provide basic pictures of accommodation and sometimes they are out of date. Therefore, you as a traveler may have to visit the hotel official websites to see the complete pictures of the hotel before you make decision to make a reservation. Also, if possible you may have to call the hotel to check the room availability especially if you plan to go during high season, which is about December to April.
